PRESIDENT'S FOREWORD 

The Toledo Federation of Art Societies extends warm greetings to the artists 
of an ever-widening area of Northwest Ohio and Southern Michigan, in its Thirty- 
eighth Annual Exhibition. This growing area of interest is clearly indicated, not 
only in the greater number of artists who entered their work in competition, but 
also in the fact that so many more towns are represented this year than in former 
exhibitions. 

The Federation works to encourage just such an increase in interest and par- 
ticipation in the May show. The jury of professionally qualified judges, who 
selected the work to be exhibited, were greatly impressed by the high quality of 
work entered, particularly by the scope and quality of prints and ceramics. The 
high level of achievement in painting as well, gives this year's show the largest 
number of pictures ever hung in a Federation exhibition. 

It is our sincere desire to see the number of competing artists increase with 
each year, feeling certain that this reflects a commensurate growth in artistic 
expression. 

The Federation appreciates the interest and cooperation of the Junior League 
of Toledo in sponsoring the Art Ambassadors afternoon tea and preview. 

We wish to thank the Staff of the Toledo Museum of Art for their invaluable 
assistance both in hanging the exhibition and in caring for the permanent collec- 
tion of the Federation. This collection grows each year through the generosity 
of our contributors to whom we also extend our appreciation. 

DOMINICK LABINO. President
